Hi, today I will be writing about my experience during the maker project process. My group and I are building a playhouse for small children ages 3-6.
We started building our house, and it’s been fun. We went through the whole design process. We brainstormed measurements, made a sketch, made a prototype, and now we are building. Although we are already building, we have a long way to go, and not a lot of time left. We are playing to present our house in the Make-O-Rama, or Maker Faire, which is an event at our school where a lot of projects will be showcased.
As I said before, we have a lot to do, and not a lot of time. That is something that stresses me out a bit because I really want it to be showcased in the Maker Faire since we’ve been working very hard on it.
You may be asking, “What are you going to do with a house?” The answer is, we’re going to donate it. We were thinking of maybe donating it to Dell Children’s Hospital or the Ronald McDonald Foundation. I feel like donating it will be something really nice because our house will bring joy to kids and give them something to call theirs and to claim ownership.
I’ve really enjoyed this project and have hope that we will finish in time. Thanks for reading, talk to y’all later! (:
